Depends on what weight you get. Lilly Exotics is the official reseller of Repashy goods in the UK. You can find them via their site or eBay.

I think the lowest is 4oz for £9.99. It's more expensive than other supplements out there but a quick search of it just in this forum will tell you why. Specially since supplements like Nutrobol are made using a 20 year old formula. And this is updated as and when it can be.

You will find it slightly cheaper on some UK sites, except Lilly exotics offer free delivery on it. So on the total it's better to go through them.

If you buy some, always keep it sealed and in the fridge to prolong its shelf life. I transfer mine to a sealed Tupperware.

Awesome! I'll do a little research, and I'm sure in the near future I will experiment!

Cheers!
Dan.

Might as well ask on here instead of making a new thread, for substrate, I will be getting some vinyl or lino for my gecko at some point, but was just going to use kitchen roll/paper towels to begin with as I dont have the vinyl/lino yet, was just wondering how thick it should be layed down? ie one paper towel thickness across the whole viv or more?

Picking my lil gecko up tomorrow! Super excited!

Hey there! Yeah I'd say that paper towels are fine for now, I'd use 2-3 sheets thick just so he doesn't burn himself on the heat mat! Good luck, let me know how you get on!

Vinyl/Lino is a great choice. Easy to clean and 0 risk of impaction. I myself use slate effect vinyl, to imitate roughly the natural habitat of a Leo.

For the time being it doesn't matter too much about the kitchen roll. One piece, two pieces. The heat will still penetrate. I've never used it but I think those that do layer is slightly in a sort of overlapped fashion to avoid holes.

As long as the heat mat is on a thermostat and your probe is positioned correctly then it shouldn't matter
